Carmon Elizabeth Gerlach Rodgers, 90, passed on to join her Lord and Savior, October 3, 2011. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 Saturday, October 8, 2011 in the Chapel of First Baptist Church in Ruston, LA with Pastor Andy Johnson officiating.

Carmon Rodgers was preceded in death by her husband William “Bill” W. Rodgers, parents Rudie and Minnie T. Gerlach, sister Kathryn G. Roberts, and son William Whit Rodgers.
Mrs. Rodgers is survived by 2 sons: Scott Rodgers and wife Barbara of Myrtle Beach, S.C. and Rudie Rodgers and wife Barbara of Ruston, LA. Seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren and countless friends.

She was born July 2, 1921, in Clarks, LA and was a resident of Ruston, LA for the past 50 years. Priorities were never a problem; God, church, scripture, family and friends. At First Baptist Church, as a member over 50 years, she served as president of the Women’s Missionary Union for a number of years, taught Sunday School, served on the pulpit committee, and was instrumental in the life of a church in Grand Coteau, LA.

Carmon was diverse and eclectic in her interests. After attending Northeast University she was a housewife while raising 3 active sons and attending all of their events without fail. Carmon was an accomplished gardener and always had something blooming in her yard. Her house was filled with antiques that she had “picked up” along the way. She was also a member of several clubs in the community. She loved to cook, entertain, and “visit”. Many memories were made and shared around her table; not to mention the wonderful recipes that she loved to show off and share.

Carmon approached life much like her response on which dessert she would like to have: “I think I would just like to have a little bit of everything”. Bless her heart.

Special thanks and appreciation go out to those kind souls that helped and cared for her until the end; Marion, Kay, Scheff, Cami, Sissy, Annie, Andrea, Sherry, Shirley, and the visiting Deacons of First Baptist Church.
